I LOVE Aarti and this is one of the first recipes she did when she became The Next Food Network Star. I had never tried Kale before but this salad looked so good when she made it I decided to try it. I tasted the Kale on the way home from the grocery store and was worried because it tasted bitter. No need to worry! The massaging technique turns the bitter coarse kale into tender bright green ribbons. The mango, honey and lemon give this salad the PERFECT balance of flavors.
Typically posole is made with pork and sometimes beef. I got an email the other day for a posole made with turkey. It looked interesting and I did a little playing with it and came up with a nice warming soup.
This is actually a loaf of bread baked with the sandwhich ingredients inside. Be sure to bake this long enough because it will turn out soggy if not. Preperation time does not include thawing and rising.
I made the most wonderful Baklava on ethnic night in gourmet class. I hadn't made it in a while and started craving it when I saw this little shortcut in a magazine at the doctor's office. (The best part about the wait is scanning the magazine rack!) Also, if you want to get even more fancy and creative, top with a dollop of Nutella or chocolate fudge, or even an chocolate mint bar.
